What is Emergency Contraception, and what options are available? - Tupton Pharmacy, Tupton

Emergency contraception helps to prevent pregnancy after having unprotected sex or if the contraception you and your partner have used has become impaired. To be effective, emergency contraception should be used as soon as possible – within the 72 hour window after unprotected sex.

The emergency contraceptive pill – the “morning-after pill”

 

The morning-after pill is more effective the earlier you take it. Some brands of the morning-after pill vary in the time that they are effective, from 3 days to 5 days. The emergency pill doesn’t usually produce side effects, but in some cases, someone may experience headaches, stomach pain and sickness.

 

If your condom has split during sex and contact has been made between you and your partner or you’ve missed a birth control pill, then emergency contraception should be taken as soon as possible. Call our pharmacist for more details.

A flourishing Pharmacey in our village. It has been great to see you moving into participation with our social media and advertising that you are there for us. The ramp you have provided for people with disabilities to access you shop is an amazing achievement for a small business. Well done. Through the Covid virus you have excelled in communication and delivering prescriptions around our village to those who were isolating. Obviously this meant so much more extra work for you. I thank you in your all round efforts to be part of our village. Keep up the the good work Tupton people are grateful and we need you.
